They are concerned with the health behavior aspects through which non-diabetic and diabetic African Americans can apply to counter diabetes within their communities. Furthermore, as Dehghani-Fafti et al. (2012) and Tougas et al. (2015) illustrated both theories focus on self-regulation as effective diabetic care. They explore the impact of health behaviors and self-efficacy ability of diabetic patients to take action towards preventing or eliminating the disease.

A healthcare delivery model is a systematic approach of that aims at creating quality and better access to healthcare services. Different models exist but all are aimed at the same goals base their views on provision of care and the receiving of care. The model addresses both the patient and the caregiver as the main participants and aims to solve the issues they encounter. The care receiver being the main subject of model is the one who triggers all the consequent activities that are carried out within the requirements of the model. The care provider responds to the actions induced by the patient (Hughes, 2008).
This concept embraces what defines a person human. The final concept is nursing. To define it, it’s a serving service, and a technology (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). Engagements intentionally designated and executed by the nurses to support individuals below their precaution to sustain or altered disorders (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). This also includes the patient’s viewpoint of health state, the Doctor’s standpoint, and the nursing perspective (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014).
In working out the best approach to tackle health workforce issues, the Ministry of Health calculated that 60-80% of the country’s annual mortality rate is due to preventable communicable diseases such as malaria, pneumonia and TB. HIV and AIDS are also growing concerns. They therefore chose to begin by focussing on community level provision, initiating the Health Extension Programme in 2004.” (WHO, Cauntry Case Study, 2) The Health Extension Programme was developed by the Federal Ministry of health in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. The Health Extension Programme aims to improve primary health services in rural areas through an innovative community-based approach that focuses on prevention, healthy living and basic curative care. It, therefore, introduced a new cadre of health worker, Health Extension Workers (HEWs), and defined a package of essential interventions for them to deliver from village health posts.

The overall organization and the administration of hospital networks, health care systems, and many related healthcare settings could affect the patient health prognosis, quality of care provided, and patient satisfaction. Health care organization is defined as a structured social environment or a system mainly for the delivery of health care services by specialized workforce to particular populations, communities and markets. The service provided, their mission statements, and whether they are a private or public organization may classify the health care organizations. The importance of all health care organizations is to provide healthcare service regardless of income status. The work force for the health care organization is linked to persons
Budgeting and budgetary control system in health care organizations has become an important topic not only because of rapidly increasing costs within the health sector, but also budgeting and budgetary control in service production generally, and in hospital services particularly raises specific theoretical and practical problems that have to be dealt with (Fallan & Petterson, and Stemsrudhagen 2004; Nyaland 2004; Fahlevi, 2014; Jackson et al). First, a public hospital’s main objective is ensuring quality in health care services and providing treatment to as many patients as possible so as to meet health needs of a given population. But, although providing services for increased number of patients is thought of a healthy development, it also
Healthcare workers have the unique challenge of providing safe and effective care to individuals who generally judge and base personal options on the emotional care aspects of nursing. The profession of nursing is more multifaceted and stimulated than ever before. Uncertainties and changes in the healthcare world contribute to the complexity of practical knowledge and technical expertise required of modern nurses. American Nurses Association (ANA) defined professional nursing as "the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations" (ANA, 2010 p. 8). Equally embedded in this definition is the need to regard nursing as both a science and an art, which is a source of continual debate among nurses who may stress one attribute over another.

A Community Health Needs Health (CHNA) is a process designed to identify health issues within a community, recognize the neediest, ensure the accessibility of health care resources, and ensure the good use of those resources. The ultimate goal of a community health needs assessment is to promote community healthcare by identifying and prioritizing health needs, knowing the available resources, and proposing an adequate action plan to address needs (Pennel, McLeroy, Burdine, Matarrita-Cascante, 2015). However, the assessment method is different form one researcher to another. In fact the best community health needs assessment approach remains unknown (Becker, 2015). However, there are many critics among the scientific community on the quality of some approaches.
IRO stands for independent review organization. This type of organization is present in many industries, providing peer review and judgement of a person 's work product, performance, or related behavior. The use of IROs has become a leading practice in the medical field in the past few years. It is a way to get an objective third party decision on medical cases. Why are IROs important in today 's healthcare world?
